Subject: Almost not a perfect ending!
Spell binding to say the least! This is a fabulous film for all. One has to fall head over heels for the heroine and her doctor lover. Demon alcohol and her psycological state caused a pause that made me the viewer hold my breath! Alas good will out and the ending was more than satisfying to me the viewer. A great film none the less!

Subject: Great Film
Hedy Lamar is stunning, the script is actually way ahead of its time. People like to think a realistic treatment of the problem of nymphomania couldn't happen under the Hayes Code, but guess what? Here it is. She tries to commit suicide because she can't keep herself from sleeping with men she "despises" - and that's just the first 10 minutes of the film. It's great! Watch it.

Subject: The Beauty and the Witch (and the Rich Lady).
Hedy Lamarr was a beautiful actress. Rightfully so, she is on several lists (top 50, top 100, top 101, etc.) of the most beautiful actresses of all time. She plays the lead character exquisitely - a troubled, complicated young woman, who's beauty only complicates her already varied life. She uses her beauty to control those around her. Women are envious of her, men are drawn to her. All the relationships in her life were based on the man's infatuation with her beauty. Could she really love, and be loved, by someone? This is the reason for her despair. Also starring in minor roles: Margaret Hamilton - best known as the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz." Also Natalie Schafer - best known as Mrs. Howell in the TV series, "Gilligan's Island."

A perfect movie. It's a romance and some soulless modern humans won't understand it.

Subject: Hardly Dishonored
Lamar was, obviously, a most beautiful woman. And from what I can find in research - during her life she kept a humble attitude toward that fact. She carried herself like a wall-flower in her personal life - only allowing the Silver Screen to exploit her beauty. If Hitchcock had made this movie - I believe nothing would have changed except the give-a-way at the beginning and it would have had a bit more "suspense" to the ultimate bad guy.

I really enjoyed this film! Well acted, Heddy was wonderful as always! Story was well written I thought and somewhat daring for it's time, I think.

Not a bad little melodrama but with a rather uninspiring cast including a strangely blonde Dennis O'Keefe.
One for late night undiscerning viewing

Subject: That's no lady. She's my wife!
Hedy Lamaar was beautiful and had a pretty good brain too. Police methods lack for a lot in this movie. The fight scene between the two men actually was pretty as athletic when you consider neither involved in physical jobs. The story overall is a little preposterous but alls well that ends well in 1947 Hollywood.

Fake it till you make it or in the case of Madeline Damian, reinvent yourself and become who you really want to be. Excellent film.

I wish they would show THE STRANGE WOMAN. It is public domain. Hedy is at her best when she shows us her evil side.

Subject: Better Than Sex in the City!
Don't laugh, but I could really relate to Madeline Damian (the Lamar character)! How many of us when faced with temptation, especially if we have a painful past, won't give in in order to ease the pain! Of course, it's not until we face our own personal demons that we even have a chance for 'true love' and happiness. Should be shown in every 12 Step group!

Also, got to see "the Wicked Witch of the West", and "Mrs.Howell"!

Hedy Lammar is one of those women that makes even the most mundane movement terrible elegant she is beautiful and has the grooviest accent.

Subject: Outstanding!
I extend special thanks to Internet Archive. Hedy Lammar's performance in this movie was expectedly brilliant. Born in Czechoslovakia, she came a long way in Hollywood after posing nude in a movie made in pre-Hitler Germany.

Subject: An intense drama
Edmund North's gripping screenplay is based on the much-publicized murder trial of Madeleine Smith, a young Scottish woman accused of murdering her lover in 1857. David Lean also told the story of this reputed "Trial of the Century" in his 1950 film, Madeleine.

Simply download it and watch. Great performances, nice dialogues, over all a great film.

Hedy as always was beautiful in this show and well acted by all actors, well written plot also keeping you in suspense right up to the very end. This movie will bring tears to the eyes of a lot of you folks and well worth the time to download it. Heck of a good show folks. Don't miss it.

Hedy finds it hard to break away from her past because a few nasty guys won't give her much of a chance. This was made during the times a girls reputation was easily tattered.

Subject: A very beautiful woman
I agree with other reviewers of this film that Hedy Lamarr possessed a physical beauty with which few others could compete. I can't think of a single actress today that is her match in that regard. What some may not know is she was a very intelligent woman as well. In 1940 she and her Hollywood neighbor George Antheil patented the process of frequency hopping, one of the foundations of spread spectrum communications. From 1940 through the 1960s, spread spectrum was a classified technology used in defense applications. Today, it is found in a wide range of unclassified applications, including the one that allows you to connect your laptop computer to the internet at Starbucks.

The film itself is reasonably well written and acted. Unfortunately, most of the characters other than Hedy's, Madeline Damian, are made from cardboard and never really blossom with any complexity. Although never mentioned explicitly, a major topic of the film is nymphomania (note to those with purient interests - you will not find anything in this film to satisfy your tastes. The film is not sensational in this regard). Today the condition once known as nymphomania is dismisssed by many feminists as illusionary, being in their opinion a pejorative term describing a woman with a high sexual drive.

However, the film seems truer to life than this view admits. At the beginning of the film, Madeline attempts unsuccessfully to commit suicide. Through most of the first half, she inhabits a dark cave of guilt and regret. While the film's ending is a bit sappy (having the obligatory happy ending required for the period in which it was made), the story for the most part is reasonable and even thought provoking at times..

Subject: I really liked this film
I thought this was a pretty good movie. Sure it was cheesy and predictable, but there were some surprises. I won't elaborate because I don't want to give anything away. It was paced well, the script was good, and there was some pretty good camera work. All in all it was a good, solid, film. It was interesting how they portrayed Heady Lamarr's character as a woman of questionable virtue and how they eluded to the things she had done in that capacity, of course it's all tame by today's standards but it makes for an interesting comparison. Did I mention that Hedy Lamarr was really, really, beautiful. Maybe my judegemnt is clouded as result, but I thought she did an excellent acting job. Her face seemed to convey all the right emotions and expressions more so than any spoken line. I actually found myself transfixed, just looking at her trying to read what her character might be feeling at a particular instance in time.
Just as an aside there were a couple of familiar faces and voices, the landlady played the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz, Mrs. Howe from Gilligan's Island was in it, The District Attorney has been in a bunch of movies. He played Dan Healy in "It's a Joke Son" and I've seen him in a couple of Marx Brothers movies. He usually plays an upper crusty blue collar bad guy. And one of the bit players early on in the film did some character voice work for Fibber McGee and Molly.
